FFotD, etc.


This foliage photo (local telco office) is unrelated to the following post.

It has become a tradition for us to spend a few days on the North Shore every year in mid-October to celebrate our wedding anniversary. (43 years!) And thus, again this year. we spent a few blissful and restful days in a log cabin.


Smokey brought along a jigsaw puzzle.


Never let it be said that I will boycott a puzzle just because it is not an image I might have chosen.

We stayed at Lamb’s Resort in one of the original cabins, probably from the 1920s.


Find the dogs in the photo. They were helping me read on the porch.

I had forgotten my insulated coffee tumbler at home and lamented to Smokey that I would have to drink my coffee from a glass.

“There are no cups here!” I whined. I had the best laugh of the year when he pointed out that there were, in fact, plenty of cups available.


Weather was beautiful for two of the three days we were there.

This is a tradition I can really get behind. Until next year….

    Oh, I love jigsaw puzzles! One of the things I was sure to bring back from my parents’ house were all my mother’s puzzles. Lots of memories there.

    That looks like a nice place! We stayed at a different resort not far from there a few years ago on our way to Grand Marais. So pretty up there…
